A Stuffie Saga in Verse



A box of stuffies on the shelf.



All for Mango, right?


"Throw one out," momma says, "toys you have too much!"
"You talk like yoda!" I reply. Mentals slip their clutch.




Into the barrel goes one toy.





An owl is given to Pea.




"What ho for Mango?" I exclaim.
Behold a piggie! I am game.





Exhausted from our newfound fun.
Nap time is next to do.




But sneaky Pea runs back inside




And claims BOTH stuffies with labrapride.




Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mango, First, you never leave your toy in harms way. Second, there is a lot of toys missing and being disposed of lately. There is a movement I have joined called "Occupy your Toys" I think you might want to look in to it. We must put an end to the toy madness. The toys are ours!!! Take back the toys and hide your stuffies from Dexter. Just lay on it, he will never find it.

p.s. The only exception is tennis balls for me, I have given mine up in honor of Bert, cause his Mommy gave all his away so he won't eat them

Do your talents have no end?

I'm sorry to say it, but I LOVE that picture of the Pea peeking through the door!

Oh no! Grab that stuffie out of the barrel, Mango! We know you can do it!

Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, great poetry there! Love Bertie's comment. I keep telling my Mom to sew, not throw!! She could stitch up all my unstuffies over and over and over and over... then none would get thrown out!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Labradors just love their stuffies.

Go Dex!!! I know you'll share with Mango later! ;-)

And I'm pretty sure Mango reclaimed his piggy after the sunbaking was over.

Mango, have they been letting you watch PBS again? Great prose and I have no doubt Dexter will have to one-up you! Ann TBL

Do you have to clear your toys and stuffies up at the end of each day? We do.... it is so tiresome having to get them all out again the next day.

WE have to be careful our Mum doesn't see your stuffie box otherwise we may just end up with one as well.

Did you destuff them?! I know how well you treat your stuffies, but something might be hiding in there! You MUST make sure to take out all the stuffings.

Ha ha ha! That Dexter knows how to steal the show -- and the stuffies! Being a fan of poetry, I really enjoyed your post in verse today. You not only have brawn, but brains as well!

Hey Mango you have a face and eyes. Loving the new main photo.

Don't you just hate it when your toys end up in the trash. I sure do.

Just do what I do. The next time you can get to the toy just hide it underneath yourself. They'll never find it there.

Dude, did you really throw one away? It just about breaks my heart to see that.

If I was able to (you know, if I could have stuffies like the rest of you) I would designate myself as a "Stuffie Rescue" and I would take all the lost, torn, dejected stuffies, bring em here to my house and take care of each and everyone.

That is what I would do....I'd be a "Stuffie REscue"

Then I would eat them.

The Army of Four said...

Woo! That was quite poetic! I thought when you said "newfound fun" that you were going to say "Newfoundland". You know. Like I thought you got a little Newfie brother or sister or something!
Luv,

Toys never become worthless enough to be thrown away! Don't you think so?

A dog can never have enough stuffies. That's for sure.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hey Mango...

Looked at your blog header again and I was thinkin' 'bout tryin' a new bizness...

Beastie Bootification Services...

Yep...the Lacie is gonna go into the facelift bizness...or in your case, those pesky jowls...

No,no I've never done it, but how how can a nip and tuck be????

Oh, I like that better...
